I used to love it. Then, it sucked and I forgot about it. Then, my writing partner told me to give it a chance, that I had missed years of good comedy. So, I walked it back. I found a new appreciation. Good new comedians. Pump yo brakes, dude. Became a fan. Then, without warning, it started to tank. Allowing Trump on the show in 2015 was the last gasp. Giving it a 2-star rating is too kind, but I gave it 2 stars. And, am giving it a couple seasons to restart. For now, my DVR is free of bothering record it. Buh bye, SNL.

SNL sucks donkeys. Hasn't been funny in decades. Time to put the show to rest. Snowflakes and Hollywood elites are not funny. They suck-donkeys.

You really don't like Leslie Jones? To each their own. But, it's 30-Rock in NYC, not L.A., so c'mon, Hollywood elites? Don't politicize it. Like I said above, It bored me away from TV forever. But, there are parts of SNL now that are better than being lumped in with the 80's and 90's SNL. Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer is LULZ. And Kace McKinnon at Hillary? She had it goin' on. I personally think the skit writing is barely par, but sometimes it kicks butt. Like the episode with J.K. Simmons from Whiplash was on, the writing was awesome. The skit with the Miss Trash contest? OMG, that was one of the best in maybe since Steve Martin or Eddie were regulars. IMHO.
